Notre Dame Is The Betting Favorite In Matchup Against Purdue This Weekend

Posted on September 16, 2021 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

Notre Dame and Purdue will face off this Saturday in Indiana’s first major in-state matchup of the season.

That game will take place at 2:30 p.m. on NBC.

All of Indiana’s legal sportsbooks will be taking bets on the game, so football fans can get in on the action this weekend.

Notre Dame football vs. Purdue odds

It’s been a while since these programs went head-to-head. Their last matchup was back in 2014, with Notre Dame taking home a 30-14 win.

The Fighting Irish have won the last seven games between these teams. The Boilermakers haven’t been able to pull off a win since 2007.

Despite that, Purdue will be coming into the matchup with some confidence. The team dominated UConn 49-0 last week.

Notre Dame hasn’t exactly been phenomenal in its first two games so far. It narrowly slid past Florida State 41-38, and then had to stage a come-from-behind rally against Toledo to win 32-29.

The Fighting Irish are the No. 12 team in the country according to the latest AP Top 25 Poll.

However, the team is looking vulnerable, and sportsbooks have taken notice. The lastest Notre Dame odds have the Fighting Irish favored by a single touchdown.


Best sportsbook deals for Notre Dame vs. Purdue

Sportsbooks are constantly refreshing their promotions for betting on college football.

Most operators have something different to offer, so shop around a bit to find the best deal for you.

You can use all of these deals to bet on Notre Dame vs. Purdue.

Unibet $500 bonus Bet

Unibet is hoping to find some new Hoosiers to try out its platform.

The sportsbook’s latest deal is for new users only, so you won’t be able to use this promotion if you already have an account.

Unibet’s new gambler bonus is a $500 bonus bet that you can use on college football games like Notre Dame vs. Purdue. That’s a fantastic way to get your bankroll started if you’ve never used the sportsbook before.

All you have to do to qualify for the deal is to sign up for Unibet.

Once you do, just place your first cash bet of at least $10. If your bet loses, then Unibet will refund you with up to $500 in site credit.

BetRivers NCAA Football Parlay Boost

BetRivers Indiana is running a special promotion for college football Saturdays this year.

This deal is specifically for parlay gamblers, so if you like betting on multiple games at the same time, then this is for you.

The deal is a 20% profit boost on any college football parlay with at least three legs. That means you can use Notre Dame vs. Purdue as one of the legs for your bet.

There is a $25 max bet for the promotion, but that’s still a great value if you already planned on creating a parlay.

To use the deal, just sign in to BetRivers on any Saturday. You can find the parlay boost under the “Promotions” section of the BetRivers website or app.

DraftKings Notre Dame Same-Game Parlay

Speaking of parlay betting, DraftKings is also offering a new option for football fans.

This isn’t a sportsbook promotion, but rather a new feature from DraftKings.

The Notre Dame vs. Purdue game is eligible for the company’s same-game parlay tool.

The company just added the feature back in August. Same-game parlays are not available for every football game out there, which could make this an interesting opportunity for gamblers to give the feature a shot.

Notre Dame’s situation could be particularly enticing for gamblers because of its rotating quarterback play.

Jack Coan and Tyler Buchner have both been splitting the offensive duties so far.

Regardless of whether you like the team’s offense, a same-game parlay could be a fun way to bet on the situation.

Same-game parlay betting isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for something different, then DraftKings could be a good option for your Notre Dame vs. Purdue wagers.
